The Scarlet Ibis:

“Emily Harmon also provided a wonderful voice to Brother’s superstitious Aunt: her tone color was perfect for the whole role, whether it be for her full hopeful use of the upper register, or the deep sounds of her low register for the more ominous parts of the role.”


"As the boys’ pious aunt, mezzo soprano Emily Harmon delivered several comic lines with sharp timing that briefly eased the tension. Yet her trancelike prediction of Doodle surviving through infancy and her other foreshadowing statements left their mark at key points throughout the opera."

-Boston Classical Review

The Dangerous Liaisons:

“Emily Harmon's seductive, duplicitous Merteuil delivered the most rewarding performance; she shaped her recitative phrases with authority and displayed good comic timing.”

​-The Boston Musical Intelligencer

The Beautiful Bridegroom:

“Emily Harmon as the matchmaker Madame Kirsten, possessed a smooth vocal quality perfectly suited to her conniving character.”

​-The Theatre Times

Hyacinth Curl World Premiere:

“The world premiere of ‘Hyacinth Curl’ was exceptionally transporting. The voices of [Adrienne] Arditti and mezzo-soprano Emily Harmon swooned in the sinuous but sparse lines of a Sufi devotional poem, overlapping and swelling into rapturous harmony before joining at last in unison. Occasional arresting peals from the singers’ handbells provided the only accompaniment.”

-The Boston Globe

“Arditti and Emily Harmon (another guest joining Hub [New Music] for this concert) blended beautifully, achieving a restrained but effective aesthetic seduction.”

​-The Boston Musical Intelligencer

Dark Sisters:

"Emily Harmon carried most of the opera’s dramatic pull in the tragic role of Ruth. The death of Ruth’s two children as well as her role in driving Eliza from the faith gnawed at her conscience until her death. Harmon’s mellow voice lent tenderness to the anguished phrases of the guilt-plagued victim."
